You should change your name from SVMK to the Idaho Kid. You definitely are doing a lot of great work in your state. I just got back over there this week to do Borah Peak and am really enjoying the Idaho outdoors that you are putting on the map. Hyndman one week, Borah the next, it just doesn't get any better than that.

Thanks Dean! I enjoyed your TR up Borah and I'm glad you made it over here this summer. IdahoKid huh? I like it, I wonder how many times I can change my name before people get angry...cause I wont be a kid toooo much longer lol.

PS I've had many people tell me COR on Borah wouldn't even phase me and others say I should take ropes. I'm planning on soloing it soon and was wondering what your opinion is of the notorious route.

You remember Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid? Well, it never mattered how old Sundance got, he was always the Kid.

Age is only a factor if you let it become so. That was the gist of my Borah TR in a way. That 56 year old woman who'd never done anything like Borah before only hesitated briefly before doing both ends of the crux moves on COR. For you, I'd think a little common sense will easily carry the day. It isn't hard, just make sure you have three point contact on the one sketchy part as the holds are all good and the downclimb on the upper end of COR is easy. I wouldn't take a rope or anything else at this time of the year. If there is snow on that route, of course that changes everything. I don't think you will have any problems a all. Just be smart about that section. As I always say, the most dangerous part of the mountain is the drive to and from.

Be safe and have fun.

Thanks for the vote Barry! I'm glad you pointed out those weather links to me, being the weather freak I am, I'll be adding them in my pages any way I can.

Thanks MG! The views from the top spectacular, especially of Wildhorse Canyon, but I can't put all those photos on SP :-)

Nice page of a nice mountain! One thing: I'd like to see even more summit shots of the surrounding area.

And yet another fine addition Sean! Careful, the Earth will run out of mountains at the rate you bag them!
